Quantity take off- structures
Quantity takeoffs are an important aspect of the construction cost estimating process
Quantity takeoffs are an important aspect of the construction decision-making process. They are an important aspect in comprehending the scope and requirements of a project. A quantity takeoff is required regardless of the size of the project. A project’s quality of analysis and the sort of data obtained for quantity takeoffs can make or break it. Quantity takeoff requires specialized skills in data management as a poor estimation of costs will affect the entire construction chain.
The principles of construction cost estimates, including the creation of a work breakdown structure, are covered in this course. The QTO for conventional structural systems, such as earthwork, reinforced concrete, and brick/block, is the focus of technical attention.
This course introduces the types of cost estimation from the conceptual design phase through the more detailed design phase of a construction project. In addition, the course highlights the importance of controlling costs and how to monitor project cash flow. Students will work on a break-even analysis of construction tasks in a project.
